Roger Daltrey – Giving It All Away lyrics

Writers: Leo Sayer & David Courtney

I paid all my dues so I picked up my shoes,
I got up and walked away.
Oh, I was just a boy,
I didn't no how to play.

Worked hard and failed
Now all I can say is
I threw it all away.
Oh, I was just a boy
Giving it all away...

Sail away, sail away,
Ooh, I know better now, I know better now
Giving it all away

Ooh, I know better now, I know better now
I've given it all away...

Went out in the world too much for my nerves
Only myself to blame.
Oh, I was just a boy
Nobody else to blame...

I've done all I can, now it's out of my hands
Stand on my head and say
Oh, I was just a boy
Giving it all away...

Sail away, sail away,
Ooh, I know better now, I know better now
Giving it all away

Ooh, I know better now, I know better now
Given it all away...

    It describes the lost opportunities of youth as a result of not having enough life experince and wisdom. However by " giving it all away" in yoiur youth this is how the man grows. The end of the song saws that even when we know better we are still giving it all way.
    Imo it describes the endless journey from boy to man and says one can't be without the other.
